Awwww! Hannah, you made all of our lives better for having known you. Happy Birthday!

Kathi and Murphy

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

She is just gorgeous and I love her name. I'm sure she made giant paw prints in your heart. It's hard to lose a furkid, but at least the memories live on. My internet won't let me watch the videos, but just from the image stills it looks like you had some good times!

((Hugs))

(with the spirit of Pebbles watching from the Rainbow Bridge)

 

Smore is my tripawd kitty who adopted me one summer evening. She had an injury to her front left leg and had to have her leg removed July 17th. She was only 3 or 4 months old at the time. Now she moves faster than some four legged cats!

Sending you so many hugs and love!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Happy 10th Birthday, Happy Hannah......her and Polly have very close dates for their 10th birthdays......it makes me sad that neither saw their birthday this year, but I know they are having a huge party over the Bridge. 

Sally, I know today is difficult, but I also know that Happy Hannah is right by your side, to guide you and and to let you feel her calming presence....that is what I know happened with me for Polly's birthday. They both knew how much we needed them to get through their special day. We are and were able to celebrate the happiness and great joy that they both brought into our lives.

Keeping you in my thoughts and sending much {{{{hugs}}}} and love....

Bonnie & Angel Polly

P.S. I do hope steak, ice cream, cake, and M&M's were the choice of celebration today....!! Oh, and chocolate, and wine, etc....!!

Happy Happy Birthday Hannah dear, you sweet beautiful angel! I know that you and all our doggies and kitties are pawtying and having the best time ever chowing down on your favorite treats!

Sally it's so sweet to see the videos and watch you two. Thank you so much for posting them. It's clear, the love you had together was stronger than life itself, it's timeless. As bittersweet as today was for you, I hope that you were able to watch these and smile remembering all these cherished times. I know it's hard when you hit a milestone like this. {{{{{{hugs}}}}

Happy Birthday to our beautiful princess, Happy Hannah!!! I know she is with you in spirit, Sally. Love the videos-the love between the two of you...priceless. Thinking of you today.

Sending hugs to you,

Joan and Lily

Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.

Happy birthday little Miss Happy Hannah!

I know that you are having a huge party with all the other tripawds that crossed the bridge earlier this year :)

Thanks for sending Merry Myrtle to your Mom too - though she misses you more than words can say Merry Myrtle helps to make the days easier and gives her daily reminders of the reasons she loves you so much.

Much love
